Remember when TLC actually stood for “The Learning Channel”? No? Well neither do I, but now it’s television’s home to: grotesquely large families, midgets, and grotesquely large midget families. The crown jewel of crap is Toddlers and Tiaras. A place where parents force their children into sick and degrading beauty pageants in order to live out their failed dreams of glory. The kids are glorified dolls: dressed, slathered in make-up and forced to mince in front of a panel of judges. Recently they decided to jettison the veneer of a “Beauty pageant” and decided they wanted the little angels to become prostitutes now, instead of 20 years down the road (the obvious progression for a failed beauty queen I suppose).
If you are going to dress a child up as a Julia Roberts character, why not one that isn’t a hooker? Like Erin Brokovi…wait…never mind.
